: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Embankment Fellowship Centre by Edana Romney
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Edana Romney , [address removed]
The aim of the Embankment Fellowship Centre is to help ex-Servicemen and men of the Merchant Navy of more than forty-five years of age who are in difficulties, in poor health, or unemployed. A hostel in London provides for those who are temporarily out of work and helps them to find new employment; it also provides a home where men needing out-patient treatment after leaving hospital may stay, if they have no one to look after them, until they are able to return to their work. The Fellowship also has a seaside home, which affords a permanent residence for aged men who are past employment.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
